Re: tax software

I've always used TurboTax as well...I use Quicken too, so it's a natural. Don't know if it's the best or worst...but it works for me.

Re: tax software

Cheap, easy to use, they check it first, then they have IRS check it for acceptance, check it the mail in two weeks, I've never even tried anything else so I can't compare.

Re: tax software

Taxact. They started out as a homegrown tax program, and I have been using them since. I just filed my taxes last night since I have received all my paperwork. It's $20 for their program, and you get 1 electronic file for free thereafter it's like $8. So for $28 I can do my taxes and have both state and fed submitted electronically. I did my mom's while I was at it.

It might help if you are more specific about what you are concerned about..

Re: tax software

i just wanted to see if there was any issues that people had ran into when filing - ie - wrong returns.

What i read from a review site was that taxcut was ginving incomplete data and trying to make people comeinto the HR Block store.

I have used it for 2 years with NO problems that I am aware of

Re: tax software

I would not touch TurboTax with a gloved 90' pole from behind leaded glass (unless of course you enjoy spyware and draconian licensing systems).

No thanks.

I had no problems un-installed H&R TacCut at the end of last year. It worked well for me. YMMV.

There are plenty of sites like this around the net:

Turbo Tax Spyware Deleting Links

From another site:
Quote:
Well wonder no more product activation has now made its way into one of the most popular software programs ever created, TurboTax. And, as an extra bonus, the latest release of TurboTax comes with Macrovisions's obnoxious C-Dilla malware. C-Dilla prevents you from copying the CD by disabling your CD-RW drive. That means it's monitoring your CD writing activities all the time. As if you needed more processes running on your machine. Early reports from some users indicate that C-Dilla has caused interference with other software and that it is inordinately difficult to get rid of, perhaps requiring a low-level hard disk format. And to make things even dicier, Intuit apparently did not overtly inform purchasers of the new TurboTax that C-Dilla was included and would be installed on their systems.
And more..

You need to find a friend who is a CPA. Lucky for me, I have one, and she rides too!

Some of the technical publications that I get weekly indicate that the IRS flags e-filers for extra carful examination and your odds of audit are MUCH higher.

I've always e-filed in the past but I'm not so sure I'll do it in light of the increased off of an IRS anal proble.

YMMV.

I don't want to sound like a jerk here (really!) but stopsign, I find your avatar to be a very inappropriate and because of it I have decided to not show any avatars from this forum.
